  • Haydon Kerk - Introduction to IDEA Drive +

    This video introduces the user to the IDEA drive graphical user interface. The video covers part number entry, drive run modes, and various real-time commands which can be performed. A demonstration gives the user a quick insight on how easy it is to setup and run a stepper motor. Various move profile parameters are altered in real-time mode to show the user how a stepper motor behaves with ramping and micro-stepping.

  • Haydon Kerk - Closed Loop IDEA Drive +

    This video introduces users to a closed loop system using our IDEA drive and stepper motor. The video covers our 2 closed loop features on the IDEA drive: stall compensation and position verification: A demonstration shows the user the difference between open-loop and closed-loop configurations and depicts both of the closed loop features. quick insight on how easy it is to setup and run a stepper motor. Various move profile parameters are altered in real-time mode to show the user how a stepper motor behaves with ramping and micro-stepping.

  • Haydon Kerk - Stepper Motor Programmable Controller IDEA Drive +

    The IDEA Drive is a fully programmable control unit that uses an intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI). The IDEA Drive technology is available in several different configurations including an external programmable drive and controller, or integrated with a linear actuator to form a complete package of motor, actuator, controller, and drive. Communication protocols are available in either USB or RS-485.

  • Pittman Motors - Bearing Systems Used in Small DC Motors +

    In this video by Pittman Motors, various motor bearings will be discussed as well as how to choose the best bearing system for your DC motor application

  • Pittman DC Motor Heat Transfer +

    How does heat transfer and temperature rise affect a DC motor? In this short video by PITTMAN Motors, heat transfer and its affect on motor performance will be discussed.

  • Haydon Kerk BGS Linear Rail System +

    The BGS Linear Rail system combines many technologies into a single integrated linear motion platform. The system provides excellent load capability and is engineered for both normal loads and moment loads. High roll, pitch, and yaw moment load capability allows the linear rail to maintain tight accuracy and repeatability even with significant cantilevered loading. Depending on the rail series, maximum stroke length available is 760 mm (30 in) and static load rating up to 1000 N (225 lbf). Dynamic load capability is a function of the frame size, motor rating, and required motion profile.
